Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

by Jim O'Connor, 2022-05-13

Leinster got the job done in the first half last week away to Leicester. Then in the second half it was just about keeping Leicester at bay which they did convincingly enough for the most part. Some were critical of the overall Leinster performance but a proud Leicester team was always going to have a decent spell in possession. And the tough second half when Leinster had to dig in and produce big defensive moments will battle-harden them more than scoring another twenty points in a handy win. It should stand to them for the tough fight they face against Toulouse tomorrow afternoon.

First a word for the young fellas in South Africa.

Even after they got a losing bonus point against the Sharks the previous week, it still looked a tall over to avoid a heavy beating against the rampant Stormers. But the young lads and a few experienced old boys put in an incredibly gutsy performance to not only get a losing bonus point of their own but also to deny the Stormers a four-try one. This secured top spot for Leinster and home advantage for the knock-out stages.

It's a top of the table clash as first-placed Leinster take on second-placed Stormers with just two games to go. Leinster lead by nine points and need two more points to be assured of 1st place in table and home advantage throughout the knock-out stages. But it will be tough against a Stormers side who are eyeing up a late run for top place themselves.

It's the commentator's nightmare Leicester v Leinster in the Champions Cup quarter-final!

But before then there's a two week tour of South Africa in which most of Leinster's front-liners won't be involved. Leading the URC table by ten points with just three games to go Leinster seem confident enough they can keep top spot despite effectively conceding the two next games with the squad they've picked.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Connacht Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2022-04-14

So after all the build-up last week about large-scale wins in the Sportsground, Leinster take just a five point lead into tomorrow's game.

On a couple of occasions Leinster looked like they were going to run away with last week's match, but credit to Connacht for keeping themselves in the tie. They refused to capitulate and forced Leinster into some poor errors, especially in the second half when they really should have added an extra score or two.
